Green Open Access refers to making a version of work (usually the author's accepted manuscript) available in an Open Access repository. These can be institutional repositories such as the Cambridge's Apollo repository or subject based, such as arXiv, PubMed Central, RePEc or SSRN. Green Open Access can be considered to be 'secondary Open Access'.
